You wandered in
To the forest
Following that shiny red ball
And by the time you looked up
You were lost
But that’s not all

You confused your journey
With my journey
You tried to nail me
Like minerva to your bow
But my job here
Is not to deliver you
But to hold a mirror
Till you see how

Oh say can you see me
Oh say can you see me
Oh say can you see me over here?

You want me
To tell you a story
But I am weary
Of entertaining
I’ll have more to say when I’m happy
‘Course, then I’ll have less to sing

But there’s no me
Left for me
No incidental time of day
No wild adventures
Except in darkness
So dark I’d rather not say

Oh say can you see me
Oh say can you see me
Oh say can you see me over here?
Over here
Way over here
